Scared White People with Hair Raised

Poll: One in Four U.S. Muslims OK With Homicide Bombings Against Innocent Civilians.

WASHINGTON — One in four younger U.S. Muslims said in a poll that homicide bombings to defend their religion are acceptable at least in some circumstances, though most Muslim Americans overwhelmingly reject the tactic and are critical of Islamic extremism and Al Qaeda.

While nearly 80 percent of U.S. Muslims say homicide bombings of civilians to defend Islam can not be justified, 13 percent say they can be, at least rarely.

That sentiment is strongest among those younger than 30. Two percent of them say it can often be justified, 13 percent say sometimes and 11 percent say rarely.

"It is a hair-raising number," said Radwan Masmoudi, president of the Washington-based Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy, which promotes the compatibility of Islam with democracy.

---Hey Antwon, sick of women clutching their purses tighter when you walk by? Hey Mohammed, tired of those silly airport screeners giving you the once over? Or just tired of white people? I scare white people, a t-shirt for the modern young "minority" man or woman.
